The Spectrum of Teaching Styles (The Spectrum ) is both a philosophy and a model. It is a philosophy of deliberate teaching. As a model, it outlines a process leading toward ever increasing student (or in sport coaching, player) independent learning. The Spectrum provides an understanding of teaching as series of episodes where teaching style is intentionally matched with task objectives and learner outcomes. Each style has an operational structure that explains the behavioural role of the teacher/coach and its influence on student/player behaviour. In effect, The Spectrum helps the teacher and sport coach as a deliberate designer of educational spaces, possible as the teacher/coach understands precisely how their pedagogical decisions influence the learning behaviour of the student/player. In this presentation I will briefly outline the philosophy and model, explain how to use The Spectrum in planning, delivery and reflection on teaching and sport coaching episodes, and use examples to show how The Spectrum provides insight and clarity into the complexity of any teaching or sport coaching episode. This presentation will interest teachers and sport coaches curious about intentional teaching for effective learning.
